Members of the Wauwatosa Police Department's Community Support Division, with backup provided by the folks at WauwatosaNow.com, are now blogging. We will be providing you with an ongoing series of crime prevention tips, any current crime trends as well as pertinent news and notes as it relates to your Police Department.
The Wauwatosa Crime Stoppers need you! The Crime Stoppers is a volunteer board that serves to deter and prevent crime in the City of Wauwatosa. The board accomplishes this goal by advertising cash rewards for information leading to an arrest, fund raising so that there is cash to pay out when warranted and finally voting to approve pay out of reward money. The Crime Stoppers board meets for an hour on the first Tuesday of every month and has two major fund raisers, the extremely popular and successful Mother's Day Pancake Breakfast held every Mother's Day at Hart Park and our annual "Shredding Day" every September in which citizens can bring personal papers and such for proper destruction.
This is an opportunity to meet people from the community as well as surrounding communities; help to keep Wauwatosa the safe place it is and get an inside look at your Police Department.
In order to become a member of the Wauwatosa Crime Stoppers you only have to meet the following four criteria:
- Be a Wauwatosa resident or own a business, work for a business or own real estate in the City of Wauwatosa or otherwise have a vested interest in the community.

Every year we are reminded about Trick or Treat safety, and yes, this year I am going to remind you yet again. Please take a few moments to review the list and discuss the appropriate items with your children before venturing out in search of sugary treats.
